American Splendor: Another Day by Harvey Pekar ****
I didn’t know anything about this collection going in. As a huge fan of the movie and his longer work Our Cancer Year, I was very excited to read the short stories that Pekar is mostly known for. And I was certainly not left disappointed!
There’s a build up of nothingness in your chest, and you just have to clench at it with your weary hands, because not even your ribcage can keep what’s pounding through it and seeping throughout your body.
eyebrow gaps are better than thigh gaps reblog if u agree
A co-worker just informed me that today is the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.
I told him it was also Billie Piper’s and Tatiana Maslany’s birthday. He knew Billie, but not Tatiana.
This is one of the best fucking gifs I have ever seen

'Coercive passing' can be thought of as an alternative term to 'invisibility.' Whereas invisibility suggests that one is simply “unseen” in their marginalized identity, the concept of coercive passing suggests that one isn't simply invisible but actively perceived as something other than they experience themselves to be (as influenced by social construction and power hierarchies). Thus, being 'invisible' in fact means being actively, coercively passed off as a member of the default/hegemonic group, entailing erasure as well as more subtle forms of oppression.
This is particularly relevant to the concept of bisexual invisibility — taken from this perspective, it’s easy to understand that bisexuality and bisexual people are not invisible, but are being actively and coercively erased.
u know when u really like someone and literally every little thing they do is cute and no matter what face they make they always look perfect to you
Mako: The stars look beautiful tonight.
Asami: Stars. The stars were out when I discovered my father was an Equalist.
Asami: Because it was night time...when I found out he was an Equalist.
Mako: Hey, I got us some dumplings!
Asami: Dumplings. My father used to buy dumplings.
Asami: He used to make sure we'd both get an EQUAL amount. I guess, now we know why.
Mako: Well, I'm gonna go to bed...
Asami: My father used to sleep in a bed.
OKAY. OKAY. WHAT THE UNHOLY HELL. OH GOD I’M SO MAD. HANG ON LOOK, KEEP READING THIS AND I PROMISE I’LL BE MORE CALM.
In 2012, a 17-year-old boy named T.J. Lane killed three fellow classmates in a school shooting, and was sentenced to life in jail. But wait, that’s not the worst part. This kid pulled a few nasty stunts to really show how much of a pathetic monstrosity he is. In the courtroom during his trial, he took off his more formal clothing to reveal a white undershirt with the word “KILLER” crudely written on it. He was smiling and laughing while the case progressed through the day. And to top it off, when he was finally sentenced [to life in prison], he turned to the families of the victims he killed, and said, “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F—- all of you,” before flicking them off. As if this sick waste of human life couldn’t get any more disgusting.
AND NOW, FOR THE DAMN KICKER: This vile animal has somehow managed to fucking escape prison with a fellow inmate, and is currently on the run. I urge any and all of you to spread this info around and be fully aware of the tragedy this vermin has caused. He must be found and apprehended as soon as possible, and if I’ve made anyone more aware, I’ve helped this cause.
I WANT HIM OFF THE STREETS AND AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW INFURIATED I AM. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OBSCENE LANGUAGE BUT I’M PISSED OFF AT THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THIS IS ONLY ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN.
he still breathing meanwhile Mike Brown is dead.
He is still breathing while thousands of innocent/unarmed/guiltless black people are deceased.
They did catch this sick fucker by the way, thank god.
